Meanwhile, the apostles were meeting regularly at the Temple in the area known as Solomon's Hall, and they did many remarkable miracles among the people. The other believers didn't dare join them, tough, but all had the highest regard for them. And more and more believers were added to the Lord, crowds both of men and women. Sick people were brought out into the streets on beds and mats so that at least Peter's shadow would fall across some of them as he went by! And crowds came in from Jerusalem suburbs, bringing their sick folk and those possessed by demons, and every one of them was healed. Acts 5"12-16 (TLB)
God has given us many signs to show us how to know and follow our Creator. If we look up into the sky at night, we can see what astronomers tell us are millions of galaxies, each with more stars than the number of grains of sand on the earth - a sign of God's greatness (se Gen. 1:16). Yet another sign is God's rainbow as a promise that never again will God flood the earth (see Gen 7:4; Gen. 9:11-16). The clearest and most powerful sign our Creator has given us is the cross, which demonstrates how much God loves us (see John 3:16).
What signs can we leave for others? Maybe we can help build a new school or orphanage, either by joining a team or financially supporting and praying for such a venture. Other signs could be the food we leave at a food bank or clothes we donate to the homeless. Maybe the best sign we can leave is the encouragement, time, or prayer we invest to help point others in the direction of Christ Jesus.

Prayer: Dear God, thank you for the signs you have given us. Most of all we thank you for your great love for us. In the name of Jesus, who came to show us the way to you. Amen.
